Nominated* for 10 Academy Awards(r) and winner for Best Picture, it's the film that inspired a nation! Audiences and critics alike cheered this American success story of an "everyman" triumphing over all odds. Featuring a dynamic musical score, a thrilling fight sequence and four Oscar(r) - nominated* performances, this rousing crowd-pleaser will send spirits soaring. Fighting for love, glory and self-respect, Rocky(r) scores an exultant knockout! Rocky Balboa (Sylvester Stallone) is a Philadelphia club fighter who seems to be going nowhere. But whena stroke of fate puts him in the ring with a world heavyweight champion, Rocky knows that it's his one shot at the big time - a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to go the distance and come out a winner! *1976: Actor (Stallone), Actress (Talia Shire), Supporting Actor (Burgess Meredith, Burt Young), Director (won), Original Screenplay, Original Song, Editing (won), Sound
The only remaining evidence that Sylvester Stallone might have had a respectable career, this 1976 Oscar® winner (for Best Picture, Director, and Editing) is still the quintessential ode to an underdog and one of the best boxing movies ever made. After writing the script about a two-bit boxer who gets a "million-to-one shot" against the world heavyweight champion, Stallone insisted that he star in the title role, and his equally unknown status helped to catapult him (and this rousing film) to overnight success. The story is familiar, but it's handled with such vitality and emotional honesty that you can't help but leap and cheer for Rocky Balboa, the chump-turned-champ who stuns the boxing world with the support of his timid girlfriend Adrian (Talia Shire) and grizzled trainer Gus (Burgess Meredith). Oscar nominations went to all the lead actors (including Burt Young as Adrian's hot-tempered brother), but four sequels could never top the universal appeal of this low-budget crowd pleaser. --Jeff Shannon

Rocky is an amazing and inspiring movie that is for sure one of Stallone's best movies ever. Rocky is a classic movie not to be missed!
that was nominated for 10 Academy awards but only won 3 , Best picture, Best Director & Best film editing
the film should've won another 3 awards
for Best supporting Actor Burgess meredith, Best music score & Best written screenplay by sylvester stallone in my opinion
Burgess meredith & Music composer Bill conti were nominated but ofcourse Didn't win
the first blu-ray version of this film was back in 2006 when the 2 Disc collectors edition DVD was also released
this first blu-ray release had absolutely no special features carried over from the 2 Disc collectors edition
plus the picture quality was very average and still had some Grain in the picture
the 2nd blu-ray reissue was released back in 2010 and was another Disgusting reissue by MGM/20th century fox
the same as the 2006 version, no extras at all just the Theatrical trailer
so i assume the picture quality is no Different either
but finally in August 2014 MGM/20th century fox get it right this time
not only have they added the old special features from the 2 Disc collectors edition DVD
but they have also added new special features to
plus MGM have also remastered the picture quality in new 4k 1:85:1 widescreen better than the previous 2 versions
and it Definitely shows, the picture quality looks amazing very sharp hardly no Grain at all
unfortunately MGM didn't make any effort with the sound quality, a new 6.1 or 7.1 master audio mix would be Great
but just the same 5.1 Master audio mix is on this new blu-ray
the cover art has changed to, this new remaster has Rocky & Apollo actually fighting in the ring
all the old special features have been added from the 2 Disc DVD set plus new special features have been added aswell

all this on 1 Blu-ray Disc, incredible
Definitely time to upgrade and get this new 2014 reissue & scrap the old dvd & blu-ray versions worth the money for sure.
5 stars i gave it
No plot spoilers from me: Stallone plays Rocky Balboa, "The Italian Stallion", a talented but unfocused club boxer\"leg beaker". His circle of "friends" include a two-bit loan shark, a grouchy washed up boxer turned trainer, a scamming friend with serious social issues, and a repressed girlfriend. Rocky gets his big chance when the current Heavy Weight Champion, Apollo Creed (Carl Weathers) needs a stand-in fighter on short notice.
Have been raised near Philadelphia (I proposed to my wife on the steps of Independence Hall), working downtown for 10 years, and taking my kids to places like the Art Museum, seeing the familiar sights was an extra bonus for me!
This is a great movie that I was happy to share with my kids!
